The Pit of Despair

Magic-user, 3rd Level

Range: 30 FT

Duration: 2d6 Rounds (See Text)

Spell Resistance: Yes

The Pit of Despair attacks the target’s self confidence and will to fight. If the target fails his saving throw, this spell creates the illusion of a 30 foot deep pit with mirrored walls. The target sees reflections of himself in the mirrors. These reflections constantly berate him and admonish him for each and every mistake the character has made his entire life. The images will shout each every short coming the character has either real or imagined. This verbal abuse is spawned from the target’s own subconscious. All the target can do for the duration of the spell is to defend himself against the verbal attacks and will probably reveal an embarrassing secret from his past in the process. When the spell’s duration ends, the character’s confidence is still shaken and is at -2 to attacks and saves for another 24 hours.

If the target succeeds his saving throw, he is filled with self doubt and takes the -2 penalty to attacks and saves for the duration of the spell.
